Grateful Dead Live at Temple University on 1970-05-16

Tape provided by a person who attended the show. He acquired in the early 90's either via one of the GD Bulletin Boards active at the time or through Relix magazine. It was his understanding that his tape (the one digitized here) was a second generation (MC > C > his tape). It is difficult to confirm the validity of that now, though it certainly sounds clean enough to be true.
A non-tracked CD was burned direct from the cassette. Sound forge was used for normalizing and track balancing, as well as track IDs (SBE fixed with SHNTOOL). Nothing was done to edit the tape glitches and dropouts. It seemed that the raw tape, as a historical document, worked best as is, than with "improvements." There is occasional over-saturation that could not be "improved" upon either.
Before NSB the taper(s) can be heard trying to improve things (moving closer, etc..). Then during the song Sam Cutler can be heard first trying to buy the tape from the tapers, then moments later demanding that they shut down completely.

Subject: Temple Stadium 16 May 1970
It was a warm, clear day. The concert was excellent. A very good time was had by all. The Philly Cops closed the gates and stood outside the stadium never coming in to the crowd. That was comforting.
If you missed the 60's, there's no way we can explain it to you.
